Blade and Soul: Still no official release date

bandsIf you’re anxiously awaiting the release of Blade and Soul, you might have a bit of a wait. It’s beginning to feel like it’s not going to happen anytime, soon. Here’s the official word from the B&S team:

“As we approach the start of a new year, we wanted to bring you up to speed with what’s been happening with Blade & Soul®, and what happens next.

The game is already in its finished form in the original Korean-language version, but bringing Blade & Soul to the West involves more than simply translating the text and recording new dialogue. Gameplay styles differ greatly in different cultures, meaning that what players in Korea consider fun and balanced might not be as well-received in Europe and America. Addressing considerations like these takes time and NCSOFT® is committed to doing it right–without sacrificing any of the elements that make Blade & Soul as popular as it continues to be in Korea.

The development team at NCSOFT West has been working closely with Team Bloodlust to ensure that we deliver the best, most faithful version of Blade & Soul to Western gamers. We are making progress and plan to reveal more details about the game in the coming year.

In the meantime, our goal is to build excitement for Blade & Soul, by introducing Western audiences to the game’s beautiful graphics, compelling story and innovative gameplay. Then, when the time is right, we will release the sorts of details you have been waiting so patiently for.

Thanks for bearing with us, and stay tuned!”

So still no release date. Just they’re working on it. Let’s hope all that isn’t their way of saying they have to add quests and remove grind. Let’s hope.
